American boxer, Floyd Mayweather has announced he will again be coming out of retirement to work alongside UFC president in what could be another exhibition fight.
The former five-weight boxing world champion made the announcement on Instagram Friday morning after an earlier message that he was in talks with UFC boss Dana White.
“Dana White and I are working together again to bring the world another spectacular event in 2020,” he said.
Last year, Mayweather earned $9 million (£7m) for his exhibition contest against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, who he beat inside three minutes.
That fight was his last outing in the sport, and it took place in December 2018.
Mayweather also came out of retirement in 2017 to beat UFC fighter Conor McGregor in the Irishman’s first ever boxing match.
